@MRDANGERUS I am no longer at Gator, and neither is Dan. They do still have great techs there and Dino is THE MAN when it comes to parts, but you may want to edit Dan and me off of there and add [email protected]

Great idea. I've added Mulholland Motorsports. I won't take my vehicles anywhere else.

Are you going to add Claudius? I can't vouch for their work but they are well known. A PO had radiator work done there on the car I now own and it was atrocious. The rad was replaced and they put Spall fans in. The welds look like a child did them, the wiring was all loose and hanging, they chopped the fiberglass up so they wouldn't have to drop the whole front, not an example of their best work.

Only if you can verify a quality of service improvement or, if someone who had a recent repairs done there can vouch for them.

I think to qualify as a "Lotus" shop, it should be known if they have a Tech 1 at a minimum. Hard to do any serious service work on the later cars without it.

How about Bacchus AKA European Performance in Hollywood Fl.

No personal experience but the PO for my car had loads of work completed there.

I think Murray Bacchus had a good rep - perhaps somebody can vouch.

Jason Pannell of Pannell Motorcars is an independent shop just north of Atlanta that used to work for the local Lotus dealer. He knows Lotus and is OCD about his work. He works on most exotics but particularly likes working on Lotus. He has done a lot of work for me and I highly recommend.

Full disclosure: I work here now, but before I did I had my Evora serviced for a few years and received very good service (otherwise, I wouldn't have gotten involved!)

Mechanic Joe Grassi used to both wrench and crew chief for the Esprit race team when Doc Bundy, Paul Newman and Robert Carradine among others drove the X180R1's. We also have an ex-Toyota line mechanic who knows the Elise/Evora, and another who works on our Lotus 23b, type 79 and our customer vintage race cars.

We do Lotus and Jensen Healey almost exclusively. Have the Tech1 with the Esprit and M100 Elan cartridges, as well as the Lotus Techcentre for the newer cars.
